Donation of Goods

Ladle can use donated items such as clothing, backpacks and blankets. Items can be new or used as long as they are clean. The donated items need to be brought to the Church (320 Date Street), we can not pick up. Donations can be left at the church office or placed in the Ladle container in the West Room. There is more demand for men's clothing than women's or children's. Below are some suggested items:

Suggested Items

Men's Clothing

Our biggest needs are pants (especially jeans), shoes (especially sneakers), underwear (especially boxers), jackets, sweatshirts, and socks. All sizes are needed, but pants waist sizes 34–36, shoe sizes 10–11, and large to x-large in other clothing items are the most requested.

Women's Clothing

We primarily need pants, shoes (especially sneakers), underwear, and jackets. The most requested sizes are 8–10 in pants, sizes 7–10 in shoes, and M–XL in jackets and underwear.

Outer Clothing

We can always use coats, jackets, hoodies, etc.

Blankets and backpacks

We can use new or used (clean) blankets, ground cloths, and tarps. Backpacks and sleeping bags are always in high demand.

Toiletries

Our biggest needs are hair brushes, shaving cream, sewing kits, and nail clippers. We can always use deodorant, shampoo, lotion, razors, toothbrushes, and toothpaste.
